    It looks like the Path Extension to EWR is dying, if not already dead.

    Default Four-story condo project coming to Newark's East Ward


    Newark officials held a ground-breaking ceremony on Thursday for $5 million loft project in Newark's downtown. (Handout)

    NEWARK — Newark officials held a ceremonial ground-breaking on Thursday of a four-story condominium project in the city's East ward.

    Lofts at Lincoln Park, located at 90 Clinton Avenue, will include 24 units of two and three-bedroom condominiums and overground parking, the city said in a statement.

    Each unit will include two full baths, open kitchens, and hardwood floors.The above-ground parking garage will include room for bicycles, the statement said.

    The project is being developed by Lincoln Park Urban Renewal, LLc, formally known as The Mid-Atlantic Investment Alliance.

    The $5.19 million project is financed in part through $1.3 million loan from New Jersey Community capital and another $1.3 million loan from the New Jersey Housing Finance Agency, according to the city.

    “This project has been three years in the making. Indeed, there are many risks and complications associated with neighborhood redevelopment in the City of Newark," Developer and General Contractor Hassan Keith said in a statement.

    "However there are also a great deal of opportunities to change the graphic signs of abandonment and decay that have marred the City’s landscape, into shining new housing developments.”

    Newark mayor Ras Baraka echoed similar sentiments.

    “The construction and opening of this market-rate condominium project will add to Newark’s prosperity and our position as a destination City for new residents," he said in a statement.

    Does anyone know what's going on at the large site just east of the Benjamin-Moore plant between the Passaic River and Lister Ave? From across the river, it looks like there's quite alot of work (excavation) taking place there. Could there be another massive distribution center in the works for the site? The one across the street from Wakefern's distribution center is nearly complete now...massive structure. It's great to see that whole area being taken back from it's no-man's-land days and put to productive use once again. Those are some grand new buildings going up there - certainly much better than the scattered truck parts, piles of garbage, and overgrown weeds that have covered the sites for decades.

    Nice Project! The site is currently a vacant lot so this is a very welcome project in the up and coming Lincoln Park neighborhood.

    I am not very much a fan of the PATH extension to the airport. The nearly $2 Billion needed for it would much better serve to build a new tunnel under the Hudson or other transit extensions. The PATH train would run next to multiple existing lines that already stop at the airport, and there would not be, and likely not ever be a new train station in South Newark along this line. It would do practically nothing that doesn't happen already.

    The project to extend a building at the corner of Halsey and Warren Street has grown to include the two adjacent buildings to the north.


    More Hahne's progress




    PSEG Renovations




    I talked to a worker for the interior demolition of the Carlton Hotel and he says that his group is only doing the demolition work and nothing else. He jokingly said 2019 for a completion date, but then said possibly 2016.

    No Midtown Elizabeth/Cranford extension. No Dayton area station . No South street staion. It was never meant to serve Greater Newark residents. Thats the biggest PATH insult.

    Anyone noticed how the PATH logo arrows no longer have "NJ/NY" and vice versa?

    Happy belated Veteran's Day to all current and former service members.

    Hopefully this will not last long! I wonder who will operate the parking lot.

    Hahne's Building

    More holes to connect to the new 6-story extension.



    The building on the corner of Washington Place and Broad Street uncovered its renovated facade and it looks incredible!!! Photos against the sun and wind do not do it justice.






    Cablevision

    Whatever are they drilling for in the sidewalk? Still no cladding anywhere...

    15 Washington Street (Rutgers Dorms)


    Corner of Market Street and Raymond Boulevard Convergence and Prospect Street



    Signs on the site claim it is an environmental cleanup and it would appear that they will be removing a lot of soil. Hopefully it will be put to good use afterwards!

    The new hotel in the Ironbound that was supposed to start in June or July still has not started. Every one of the small wooden buildings between the bank office and the brick building in the distance are supposed to be removed and replaced with a 6-story hotel with about 95 rooms. It is a great design, so I hope it doesn't disappear.


    NJIT uncovered a section of the Central King Building and it looks just as good as the earlier cleaned portion.

    They no longer have offices in NJ , so there erasing NYC. Personally I think the PATH should be given to NJ Transit , the Ports and Newark Airport should go to the DOT...

    I disagree. As a trackman for NJ Transit, I'll tell you the following.
    NJTransit shoukd rename itself "To nyc transit". Because everything is done to improve NYC.
    The so called Lackawanna cutoff has become a mile extension used as an Arrow car/Sandy damaged equipment graveyard. The same was said of the rehabilitated (I took part) former Cranford industrial track.

    This above grade trackage was supposed to be for emergency staging area in case of another coastal hurricane. Instead its full of old Arrow 2 and Comet coached rusting away!

    They call ballast 'stone',use blue stone gravel (meant for sidings) on main lines. this leads to mud spots. "Job security" they say. White crushed stone is for mains!

    NERL was planned long before HBLR even occured! Its first incarnation was a Newark Penn to Irvington extension under Springfield ave. Nope NYC comes first.

    Monmouth Ocean Middlesex line (MOM)? Nah, lets invest more on HBLR to serve NY state's spoiled "I have it all and want more" bratty city.

    How about reconstructing a Weequahic Park station to serve Weequahic and Clinton Hill? What about Lincoln Park South Ironbound with a reopened South street station? Increase values and investment? NAH! Lets extend the HBLR to better serve white yuppies!

    What about the Broad st to Newark Penn NLR extension? THAT'S TO HELP WEALTHY WHITES FROM HANOVER HILLS/MORRIS CO.TO GET FROM M&E TO NEWARK PENN STATION. AND THATS ONLY BECAUSE AMTRAK DOESN'T DO SECAUCUS SFL JUNCTION.

    WHERES THE Newark to Paterson extension of NLR along old EL Newark Paterson branch? HBLR!

    Keep PATH with PA,please! LOL.
